Sean "Diddy" Combs is facing a bit of backlash after Howard University announced this week that the rapper will speak at their upcoming commencement ceremony and will also receive an honorary doctorate degree.
Some Howard University student are upset over the honor because Diddy dropped out of the Washington, D.C.-area college back in 1990 to pursue his music career.
"Can someone explain why Diddy, a person who never graduated from Howard, is speaking at graduation?" on Twitter user shared. Another wrote, "diddy is gonna make the commencement speech at Howard but what is he gonna say. ‘Well I dropped outta here & got rich but good luck.'"
